Biography

Raised on harmony and humor, Sharelle is hard to compare. If your ears had eyes, picture Linda Rondstadt, Karen Carpenter, Barbara Mandrell and Elvis all mixed up into one performer...that's Sharelle. Unique sounds of the soul could describe Sharelle's music. All heartfelt, though at times humorous, Sharelle's songs will connect with some eternal part of you. Not a copy cat artist or writer by any means Sharelle is sure to be entertaining...Sharelle is not just heard, she is experienced with your every sense.

Singer/Sonwriter; Born in Pontiac, MI on Jan 6th just 30 minutes after her twin sister, Michelle, Sharelle made her first public appearance.
She has worn so many hats already in life. At 17 years old she became a CNA while also attending CPCC and studying Recording Studio Tech. By age 24 she and her husband had 4 children. By age 25 she was making hand-dipped chocolates and baked goods for gift shops (and still dabbles in the sweet stuff from time to time) then owned and operated a coffee shop/bakery. She knows her way around a work shop and power tools and has been known to get her hands dirty under the hood of a car and got her certification for working on automotive AC units. She got her real estate broker license and operates her own real estate firm. She believes that you can learn to do anything with the right tools and knowledge. She has worked for recording studios as a vocalist although she had two years of Recording Studio Tech and is well qualified to be on the fader side of a sound board.

Music runs through her veins. From early in life Sharelle knew what she wanted in life...to sing and write. Harmony was learned in the car with 3 sisters on long trips. That required harmony of all sorts!

The volume on Sharelle's music was turned down to low for a time while her kids were very young. Although it was on low, it allowed for much reflection and writing. Then in May of 2003 the biggest life changing event occurred. For the first AND last time in her life she thought it was a good idea to take a ride in the back of a pick up truck. Someone ran a stop sign at a crossroad and Sharelle was thrown from the truck bed. She feels very blessed to have survived the accident. She suffered a broken sternum, broken pelvis and shattered right forearm. She underwent two years of surgery on her right arm in an attempt to obtain relatively normal functionality. Through that experience the volume has been turned up in her life. Life is too short to not spend every second wisely while reaching for your dreams. "After all," she says, "if you don't try to bring your dreams from the shadows to the spotlight, who is gonna do that for you?"

Sharelle has performed for thousands at a time as well as small intimate private parties. She has been a volunteer member of the NarroWay Productions cast for several years and is a guest performer at The Charlotte Rescue Mission.
She loves to talk with people and get their story 'cause everyone has a story worth hearing since every life is worth living.
Sharelle's goal? "To pluck the emotional heart strings and to share hope through her music...to help people realize that you don't have to let the experiences of your past be the author of your future."

Lyrics

Pretty

Written By: Sharelle Quick

I couldn't help but overhear
Your conversation
So I'm here now to get a
Little bit of clarification,
I heard you think I'm pretty.
I wanna know just what you mean.
But I don't think you realize
How pretty I can be.

I can be pretty stubborn
And pretty hard-headed
Pretty ornery
Pretty red-necked
Pretty romantic and charming too.
But if that ain't pretty enough for you...

I am a pretty good cook
Pretty vivacious
Pretty expressive
Pretty outrageous
Pretty handy with most power tools
And I've heard it said I'm pretty pretty too.

I hope there's no misunderstanding
My intentions.
I'd really like to make sure
That I'm not mis-taken.
I feel for the sake of clarity
I'll reiterate just what I mean
'Cause I don't think you realize
How pretty I can be...

I can work pretty hard
Be pretty tender
It's pretty official
I'm pretty tempermental
I'm pretty intelligent and witty too
And if that ain't pretty enough for you...

I can be pretty funny
Pretty classy
Pretty honesty
And pretty sassy
I'm pretty good with kids and money too.
And I've hear it said I'm pretty pretty too.

And if you're still doubtin' now
'Bout how pretty I can be
Just listen up so there's not need to repeat.

I can be pretty uptown,
But get down and dirty,
Be pretty shy & pretty flirty,
I'm pretty serious when I need to be,
But that's no where near all there is to me...

I've got a pretty good attitude
Most the time
I'm pretty committed to being kind
I'm pretty sure it's pretty clear to you
That I've heard it said I'm pretty pretty too.

With a love that's pretty much out of this world,
Yeah, I'm a pretty girl!

What A Memory

Written By: Quick, Dean, Standley

Lyrics for "What A Memory"
I cannot tell you what to do,
What road would be the best for you,
Make a choice,
Move along,
Just remember where you're coming from...
You'll be OK.
You never know with every chance you take
What a memory it could make.

I know for sure time won't stand still,
And if you don't touch you'll never feel.
Bare your soul now and then,
Give your heart out on a whim...
Though it could break.
Giving love is never a mistake,
What a memory it could make.

Good or bad,
Right or wrong,
Choose your path and carry on.
Try and give for everything you take,
What a memory it could make.

Learn to let things go,
Without a reason why,
Answers often come around in time.

Good or bad,
Right or wrong,
Choose your path and carry on,
Please don't let this moment slip away,
What a memory it could make.

Good or bad,
Right or wrong,
Choose your path and carry on,
Please don't let this moment slip away.
What a memory it could make.

Sometimes all originals, other times it is originals with covers thrown in for familiarity but all done with individual stylizing. Sets can be anything from 15 min to 2 hours depending on the particular needs of a venue, gig or event.
